Honour prevails as Neil Seery officially added to UFC Belfast card
Three fights confirmed. UFC Belfast is slowly getting its act together.
It all started when Ray Borg pulled out of his scheduled UFC 203 fight with Ian McCall at the 11th hour.
'Uncle Creepy' had been denied a decent pay-day but he was fit, firing a ready to go.
Ian @Unclecreepymma McCall tells me he'd like to fight @NeilSeeryMMA in Belfast. "I know he'll at least show up to fight & I love Ireland."

Neil Seery is game as f**k. In fact, he says so himself.

With both parties willing, ready and able, there was little bucking back or forth as a fight contracts were drawn up.
McCall was getting offers, and call-outs, from other fighters but he stuck to his word and will meet 'Two Tap' at UFC Belfast in November.

Seery's last visit to the octagon saw him defeated by flyweight tile challenger Kyoji Horiguchi, in May.
His bout with McCall will be on the main card of an event headlined by Gunnar Nelson's welterweight bout against No.10 ranked Dong Hyun Kim.
